In this enjoyably dirty-minded sendup of when-ballet-met-hip-hop youth musicals, the Wayans brothers hand the directorial reigns over to their nephew, Damien Dante Wayans, who piles on the stupid/smart gags with just the right what-the-hell abandon. The film riffs on Save the Last Dance, Hairspray, and High School Musical 3, but what’s funniest is its dissection of message-movie piety. In Dance Flick, racial and sexual differences aren’t transcended — they’re super-sized. As a rotund hoodlum, David Alan Grier does the ultimate break dance from hell. B
